Some courses offered at up-island BOCES campuses could be coming to the North Fork.

David Gamberg, superintendent of the Southold and Greenport school districts, says he’s had preliminary discussions with officials at Eastern Long Island Hospital and Peconic Landing to develop a local nursing assistant program.

In addition to the planned student communications center in Southold, which nearby school districts would share, Mr. Gamberg said he’s exploring the feasibility of creating other courses to help students become college- or career-ready upon graduating from high school.

A nursing assistant program for students could be established by the 2016-17 school year, he estimates. (more…)
